While the treatments prescribed by a physician are determined to manage a chronic disease like multiple sclerosis (MS), there are other factors that contribute for overall wellbeing. Diet and nutrition are among them. There is no special diet designed for patients with MS, but what is eaten can impact energy levels as well as bladder and bowel function. So, having a healthy, balanced, and planned diet is important. Specialists recommend a low-fat and high-fiber diet. There is also evidence that a diet low in saturated fats and supplemented by omega-3 and omega-6 can benefit MS patients. Some people may also be advised to take supplements like vitamin D or the form of vitamin B known as Biotin/MD1003.

    Dr George Jelenik wrote a book called “Taking Control of Multiple Sclerosis” which outlines dietary intake very simply ???? Dr Jelenik is a fellow MS afflicted person.

    I have been following the Wahls Protocol diet for six months. Apart from loosing some weight, no noticeable change, but worth persevering. Nothing else out there, for PPMS. At least it feels like I am doing something!
